Breanna Peltekian's curator insight, October 30, 2014 12:18 AM

This website is informative and contains information from a woman who has several years of massage therapy experience, which makes the information somewhat reputable ("Baby massage," 2014). There are, however, no references to other sources, which would have made the author’s claims more reliable (depending on what the sources were).  This webpage mentions how babies suffering from colic actually benefit from massage therapy ("Baby massage," 2014). Some relevant effects of massage therapy that this webpage lists are the following: “reduces stress in babies”, “enhances physical and psychological development”, and creates “an intimate and strong bond between parent and child” (“Baby massage,” 2014). This webpage is great for diverse groups who are into complementary healing practices, rather than prescribing drugs. It makes sense that the webpage suggests that infant massage will help with the baby’s development because this is during the critical period of the baby’s life, which is considered the time when exposures to experiences (like the massage) produces normal development in the brain (Myers, 2014).
